Bishop Creek Basin Lakes

Four lakes in close proximity in the Bishop Creek Basin allow anglers a chance to enjoy plenty of fishing in different locations without much driving. The lakes are open from March to November. They include Lake Sabrina, at the head of the Bishop Creek Canyon; South Lake, at the head of the South Fork of Bishop Creek; North Lake, a higher altitude lake; and Intake II, a smaller lake in the valley floor.
Small motor boats can be used on Lake Sabrina and South Lake. Boats are not allowed on Intake II or North Lake, but float tubes are OK. All Department of Fish and Game regulations apply.
These lakes are well-stocked for the season, so the fish are usually nice and hungry. Get some insight into bait and flies that are working at the small stores and resorts at South Lake and Lake Sabrina. Shore fishing is just as productive as being in a boat, and the location is spectacular, which makes any day a good day of fishing.
There are parking lots at all the lakes and alongside the roads. The roads are well marked.
Intake II has a handicap fishing pier installed.
